Catching Up Danish Hats…Again!

We have another handful of hats to catch up on in Denmark!

May 18: Princess Benedikte repeated her navy textured straw hat with wide, upturned brim for the first of a two-day visit to the German island of Sylt. While not visible here, I think the hat is still trimmed with a large grey silk flower, which would link well with the floral skirt in this ensemble.

Designer: unknown. My guess is Susanne Juul
Previously Worn: April 7, 2014; June 26, 2013; July 26, 2012; October 12, 2011

May 19: For the second day of the visit to Sylt, Princess Benedikte repeated her blue raffia with the same additional colourful hatband as she wore to Flensburg on May 17.

Designer: unknown.

And finally, today Queen Margrethe visited Tivoli amusement park and pleasure garden to mark the 50th anniversary of her accession, a celebration put on hold until now because of the pandemic. She repeated her pink beret with with side twist trim, taking it for a spin on a roller coaster. I think that might be a first for a royal hat!

I’m afraid to say it but… dare I hope we’re back to royal hatted events, as they were pre-pandemic? It’s certainly nice to see events happening again. What do you think of these hats?
